in an ihop in texas earning $2.13 an hour, graveyard shift, no tips. the company's supposed to make up the difference between 2:13 and $7.25. but time and time again, that doesn't happen. and when a slow night happens, and you don't earn anything, or very little in tips, you often can't pay the rent. and i guarantee you in every restaurant in america there's at least one person who's on the verge of homelessness or being evicted or going through some kind of instability. it's an incredible irony that the people that who put food on our tables use food stamps at twice the rate of the rest of the us workforce. meaning that the people who put food on our tables can't afford to put food on their own families' tables. the other key issue that we find that workers face is the lack of paid sick days and healthcare benefits. two-thirds of all workers report cooking, preparing, and serving food when they're ill, with the flu or other sicknesses. and with a wage as little as $2.13, so reliant on tips for their wages, these workers simply cannot afford to take a day off when sick, let alone risk
